Food is indispensable to our survival.
But today, it is undergoing great change.
Currently, Japan only produces about 40% of the food it consumes.
This is the lowest among all major developed nations.
Japan, as the world’s largest net food importer, will engage in all possible efforts to contribute to stabilization of demand and supply of food in the world market through increasing its own food self-sufficiency rate.
Ensuring the Future of Food is an infographical and isometric Sims-like styled video created for the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF), which highlights some of the complex issues surrounding the future of food in Japan. Topics include the amount of food imported from other countries, the problem of changing food habits, the aging farming population, and so on.
